nah mate .. its all of us, including yourself, that use it as to whose to be thanked

if nobody used it, they wouldnt give a stuff (sif councils give a stuff anyways )

Ill post a couple of pics on the weekend.

The only bit they left off is the new straight running up the side.
No biggie.. most people didnt use it anyways.

The only ones who struggle with it are the 1/5 guys, they generally end up on the land next to the track itself as its too tight for them. Other than that, run what you like .. nitro, brushless.


The real irony of it all is the council planner who pulled the old track apart, was the planner that we had our meeting with to discuss rebuilding it


For nostalgic reasons as well as the expected benefits, earlier this year we dug out of the ground 4 of the old concrete corner markers to use .. plenty of older people notice them.

Imo its the perfect area for r/c .. the land next to it gets plenty of plane & heli action, the lakes (roughly 500m down the road) get plenty of gas, nitro & brushless boats thrashing in it.

400mm fence ??????? That is a very small fence

Congrats on getting the old BORMAC track area up and running again. Now all you need is the numbers that used to run at BORMAC and you will have a very successful club

I had to read the original post twice, I thought the old Magic Kingdom was coming back

(anyone have a lazy $2.2M, its for sale, and you can still see the old track: http://www.realcommercial.com.au/com...estate/5417794)

Back to topic:

Congrats on your track, I drive past regularly on the weekends and it is always packed!

its not a club its Dr Freedoms rc gang, no membership fees just an initiation process

i don't think Doc wants to start a club, its more just a place for everyone and anyone to come and have a bash.

its just an external fence to stop the dirty bike riders from ripping it up & to stop people rolling teh tyres onto teh road.. well Ive never seen that happen, although the council has considered its risk.
The council wanted a club, its not a race track though.. everyone who uses it doesnt want to have to pay one cent to do as such, me included, I pay enough rates & taxes
We get numbers, they are not consistent enough for a club though.. its a social track, have something to eat, have a beer, run your car when you like, everyone helps each other out.

thats an old vid .. mobile phone job?


doorz, come past for a drive.. youll love seeing the old concrete corners lol .. they make me feel like a kid again.
we dont have a club, so no meetings .. its more a place that everyone knows each other, new people show up all the time, people always pull up in their cars for a look with the kids, new people with new cars all the time, lots of questions & lots of help, its great, a huge mix.
